  • Summary: Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their ownLos Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.

    The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world ever created, Grand Theft Auto V blends storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game's three lead characters, playing all sides of the game's interwoven story.

    All the classic hallmarks of the groundbreaking series return, including incredible attention to detail and Grand Theft Auto's darkly humorous take on modern culture, alongside a brand new and ambitious approach to open world multiplayer.

    GTA 5 is still a masterpiece. The open world is fantastic, the presentation is brilliant, the characters are well-written and the varied gameplay is still a lot of fun. Thanks to the technical improvements of the remastered version for PS5 the game still feels fresh and the gameplay is even better because of up to 60 fps in the two performance modes.

    Grand Theft Auto V is one the best games released in the last decade and holds up surprising well nine years later. Like any remaster, the HD makeover can’t hide all the signs of aging from a game that launched two console generations ago, but beyond that impresses. The PlayStation 5 iteration is every bit of the hilarious thrill ride it was back in 2013. Everything played through during the review was familiar territory, but it was just as captivating and entertaining as it was the first time. But by the same token, outside of technical improvements made possible by the more-powerful hardware, there isn’t much of anything new being brought to the party. This is the best way to experience Grand Theft Auto V, but faster loading times and high resolution and framerate might not be enough to necessitate upgrading to modern-gen consoles. It’s still a great port of one of the best games of all time, but it doesn’t drastically improve much over the PC and last-gen version.

    Grand Theft Auto 5 for Playstation 5 remains a game to consider, especially with the graphics enhancements implemented and the new options. However, with visual enhancements and new multiplayer content, we're still waiting on GTA 6.

    Grand Theft Auto 5's new-gen upgrade is solid and effective, but much too conservative, especially for a game that's long overstayed its welcome.

    The faster loading times and graphical bumps still make this a good-looking game, despite the age of the assets. The solo campaign still has some allure, and the online component has proven its staying power. If you've already played the campaign to death, then you might be tempted to grab this because of the ridiculously low, temporary intro price. If you're an avid GTA Online player, then you may be on the fence given the segregation of online populations. This version means that the wait for GTA6 is going to be painfully long, but what's here is solid enough to tide one over until that finally arrives.

    GTA V on PS5 is the best version of the game. The 60fps make it feel smoother to play, with faster load times being a welcomed improvement.

    GTA 5's enhanced next-gen port is definitely the best way to experience the game, and it's still every bit the enjoyable experience it was in 2013. However, with almost a decade having passed since then, Los Santos has started to show its age. GTA 5 lacks the detail or cinematic presentation of Rockstar's own Red Dead Redemption 2. Animations look less fluid, melee combat feels antiquated, and gunplay - even with the addition of haptic feedback on the PlayStation 5's DualSense controller - lacks weight. RDR2 is still without its own next-gen upgrade, while Red Dead Online continues to languish without new content. Together with the official confirmation that GTA 6 is in development, this new port feels like a step backward when Rockstar should be looking to the future. It's still a great way to play Grand Theft Auto 5, but even with the visual improvements and new multiplayer content, it feels less like a necessary return, and more like an aimless jaunt.

    Okay this review bombing is just pathetic at this point. Yeah they didn't add insane amount of new features. Sure they could have done more.Okay this review bombing is just pathetic at this point. Yeah they didn't add insane amount of new features. Sure they could have done more. BUT. This is still GTA 5. One of the best, most innovative open world games of all time. It's still this same amazing game and for consoles 60fps patch is great.

    Overall, reading these comments it has become very clear that lost of people here claiming that this release isn't as good as it should be, are actually GTA haters in general. They never liked this game. So i think this kind of review bombing is actually very bad, because it attracts lots of people who want to hate this game no matter what.

    It's still more fun, more polished, more innovative and just overall more professionally made than some new open world games like Cyberpunk2077 or Elden Ring.

    If you have never played GTA 5, i'm highly recommending it, it's phenomenal, even in 2022.

    Nothing New. No new Cars in Story Mode. They could easily add the Online Cars into the Story Mode. But they are just lazy.
